The Ostankino Tower isn’t just a television and radio tower, but a place where Muscovites and city dwellers alike can experience a panorama of Moscow from a height of 337 metres.
From this height, and with the help of the panoramic telescope, you can see all corners of the city. Children especially like the sections of glass flooring, where visitors are free to stand, jump, or even roll around on.
An interesting new section of the Tower has recently opened at the height of 85 metres. Here visitors can find out more about the inside of the tower, about its history, and about how it was built. In good weather, visitors can step out onto an open viewing deck, built in 2017.

The interactive multimedia complex allows guests to find out everything they wants to know about the Ostankino Tower, from temperature, to wind speed, to most importantly, why the tower doesn’t topple over.
Building took place between 1960 and 1967, with the cutting-edge technology of the time being used. Many of the technological findings were invented and patented at the time of this project. The project of the Tower revolutionised high-rise building methods and it remains an example of most advanced engineering to this day.
The project designer was a famous Soviet construction engineer named Nikolay Vasilyevich Nikitin, who reportedly developed the idea overnight. According to legend, an upside-down lily flower became the prototype of this grandiose structure.
It’s main purpose is to enable radio and TV broadcast. A good TV reception is found up to a distance of 120 km, covering an area which today is home to 20 million people. It is thanks to the Ostankino TV tower that the residents of Moscow and the Moscow region have the opportunity to watch their favourite TV channels and listen to the radio.
The Ostankino Tower is a place where many famous events in the capital take place. For the sporty, it has hosted a 337-meter race up its many stairs, the festival "Goodbye, Summer!" has been held here, and the International Parachute Jumping Festival "Moscow Base Open Air" for the adrenaline junkies took place here. It also served as one of the stages of the Olympic Torch Relay to mark the winter Olympics in Sochi 2014.
For Muscovites, and for visitors alike, the Ostankino Tower is, first and foremost, a modern cultural and excursion complex. Located at heights of 337 and 340 meters, its observation decks are a tourist favourite. Visit the television tower, and see a complete view of the whole of Moscow.
The Ostankino Tower is very popular with tourists, and it is visited by up to 1000 people per day. For the comfort of visitors, GoSwift developed an electronic ticketing system. This system won an award for Electronic Management at the World Summit Awards in 2013, confirming the ease of which visitors are able to book tickets.
